25 Possible Causes for Unilateral Foot Swelling

  • Lymphedema Praecox

    In the leg, the swelling usually starts in the foot and gradually moves up the limb.[] Primary lymphoedema mostly affects the lower limb (unilateral or bilateral), but can affect the arms and other areas.[]

  • Congenital Venous Malformation

    Stellate ganglion block is an established intervention used in pain management settings. Its use in the treatment of congenital venous malformations (VM) of the upper limb has never been described. We present a case of ultrasound-guided stellate ganglion block for a patient who derived excellent relief from pain[…][]

  • May-Thurner Syndrome

    Embolic occlusion of intracranial vessels can be caused by material arising proximally, most commonly from the heart, the aorta, or the carotid or vertebral arteries, and rarely from systemic veins. May-Thurner syndrome is an uncommon condition in which there is impaired venous return because of compression of the[…][]

  • Bacterial Infections

    Two hundred and forty-six patients with signs of acute bacterial conjunctivitis and/or blepharitis were randomised to receive either norfloxacin or chloramphenicol for one week in this double-masked parallel group study. Ninety-two per cent of the norfloxacin-treated patients and 93% of the chloramphenicol-treated[…][]

  • Ruptured Baker's Cyst

    We report a case of Epstein-Barr (EB) infection that presented as an acute monoarthritis of the knee. This formed a Baker's cyst which ruptured into the gastrocnemius. The peripheral and synovial white blood counts were dominated by neutrophils. After repeated aspirations, spontaneous resolution occurred.[]

  • Hemophilia A

    Spontaneous intraabdominal hemorrhage is a very rare event even in patients with bleeding disorders like hemophilia. Nevertheless this rare case must be considered in patients with coagulopathies presenting with abdominal pain. Prompt radiologic imaging and surgical consultation are of highest priority. Here we report[…][]

  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

    Radial artery autograft is re-establishing its place as a conduit of choice in coronary artery revascularization. Its revival after initial abandonment followed the recent emergence of encouraging medium- to long-term patency rates. Limb complications following radial artery harvesting are fortunately rare although[…][]

  • Hereditary Lymphedema

    A novel mutation of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor gene (VEGFR-3), was identified in a four-generation Chinese family with hereditary lymphedema type I (HL-I). Genetic linkage analysis was performed on the known genetic locus for HL-I with a panel of polymorphic markers, and then mutations were[…][]

  • Venous Insufficiency of Leg

    OBJECTIVE: The correlation between ovarian venous insufficiency and lower limb venous insufficiency remains poorly understood. Clinically, incompetent ovarian veins in association with lower extremity varicose veins are suspected when leg varicose veins are found in atypical distributions. Such distributions include[…][]

  • Venous Insufficiency

    This study measured patient outcomes among symptomatic patients with superficial chronic venous insufficiency who were treated with retrograde ultrasound-guided polidocanol microfoam 1% in a community setting. Between March 2015 and June 2017, 250 symptomatic patients with C2-C6 chronic venous insufficiency[…][]
